About Daisy

Math is a subject many fear just because it is just that...MATH! However, math can be super fun!!! Algebra is the foundation for the rest of the higher level of mathematics classes. I have my bachelor's degree from California State University, Los Angeles in Mathematics, with a minor in Spanish Literature, as well as my Master's Degree from the University of Southern California (USC- Go Trojans!). I am a credentialed high school mathematics teacher and enjoy tutoring during my spare time.

Math is in everything, our every day lives via banking, budgeting, school work, even music. I am also a flute player and have performed with several symphony orchestras throughout Southern California. I am here to help! My biggest passion is to share my joy for math with others and allow them to see how fun math can really be. I will make it fun...just give it a try :)

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT Math

Entrance exams can seem stressful and overwhelming. Having personal experience in this type of examination, I can review the math subjects that appear in the ACT. I am certified to tutor in all levels of mathematics from Algebra 1 all the way to Precalculus.

Algebra 1

Algebra is the foundation of higher level mathematics and in order to succeed in these higher level math classes, algebra skills must be strong.

Ballroom Dancing

I also have experience as a choreographer for weddings and "quinceaneras" (aka sweet 16's). Such special occasions call for waltzes and "surprise dances." My dance experience spreads all over the dancing genre spectrum. I teach merengue, bachata, cumbia, swing, jive, waltz, banda, quebradita, samba, calypso, belly dancing, bollywood, hip hop, disco, and beginning ballet.

CBEST

I am a certified California Teacher credentialed in Mathematics (Single Subject). I had to pass the CBEST and also the CSET in mathematics. I have taken both examinations and passed both.

Differential Equations

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from California State University, Los Angeles. In order to obtain this degree I was required to successfully complete a Differential Equations class, which I passed with a grade of an A. I have experience in multi-variable differentiation and extensive knowledge in Calculus.

Flute

I have played flute since 1996. I was section leader of the flute section of the Schurr High School Spartan Band from 1999-2003. I was section leader of the CSULA (California State University, Los Angeles) Wind Ensemble in 2003-2004. I was also a member of the CSULA Symphony Orchestra from 2011-2012. I have studied privately with Diane A., former piccolo player of the LA Phil Harmonic.

Linear Algebra

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from California State University, Los Angeles. In order to obtain this degree I was required to successfully complete a course in Linear Algebra. I have extensive knowledge in Matrix theory and application, as well as Vector spaces.

Logic

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics from California State University, Los Angeles. In order to obtain this degree I was required to successfully complete a Logic class.

Microsoft Excel

I have over ten years experience in clerical/office administration work. I maintain several databases using such programs as Microsoft Excel. My background in math has also allowed me to become an expert in formula manipulation within this software.

Salsa Dancing

I am a certified Zumba instructor. I am also a "folklorico" (Mexican Folk Dance) instructor at the high school level. My dance experience spreads all over the dancing genre spectrum. I teach zumba six days a week and folklorico twice a week. My experience in dance includes: folklorico, salsa, merengue, bachata, cumbia, swing, jive, banda, quebradita, samba, calypso, belly dancing, bollywood, hip hop, disco, and beginning ballet.

Extremely Knowledgeable — Daisy was able to explain, in greater detail and in a matter of an hour, what my Calculus professor tought in a couple weeks. Even better, she explained concepts in a way that made it seem like I was "living in" the newest and greatest edition of Calculus for Dummies! Look no further! You've found your four leaf clover! Thank you, Daisy! ...
